Catch Kiwi drama Nothing Trivial

IF you haven't had a chance to catch Kiwi drama Nothing Trivial yet then make sure to tune in this week.

The fact that it out-rated Packed to the Rafters in New Zealand, if nothing else, should peak your interest. The show's New Zealand debut in July also had the highest ratings of a locally made series in more than 10 years.

The hit series follows five mates who meet at their local watering hole each week for a trivia quiz.

"The quiz questions tend to relate with what's going on in their lives," said star Shane Cortese, whom viewers might recognise from Outrageous Fortune, another successful Kiwi TV export.

Cortese's character Mac is at the centre of the series. A trial separation with his wife inspires him to change his priorities from work to family, but despite his efforts she leaves him for another man and he is forced to re-evaluate his life.

Nothing Trivial - Nine - Thursday and Tuesday at 10.30pm
